16th Annual Gumbo Gala

Saturday April 10, 2021

Gumbo Gala is back on April 10, 2021! We missed you in 2020 and can't wait to see you again. Laissez bon temps rouler!


No two gumbo recipes are quite the same, a culinary fact that makes this Creole and Cajun favorite as versatile as it is delicious. The stew gets its biggest chance to shine at the 16th Annual Gumbo Gala, a one-day cook-off held by Birmingham's Episcopal Place. Gumbo teams from the region gather around their simmer pots, with each one attempting to impress both crowds of samplers and the panel of judges who crown each year's winner.


Visitors are allowed to taste as many samples as they wish while supplies last. Come early for the best selections. Gumbo Gala is a family friendly and dog friendly event.
